The instructions are on the syllabus. The idea is that you discuss how the websites that you explored may be linked to the varied themes and readings covered in the course. To put this another way, one of my goals in the course is for you to have developed insight into making sense of what is going on in the world. How did the course content help you to understand the content of the websites that you visited?I wish everyone a happy holiday season and New Year – as best as possible in the midst of the pandemic.
